IPMA International Project Management Association

Global Project Achievement Awards Assessment Process

All submissions must be fully compliant with the IPMA Global Achievement Awards Submission Guidelines including the need for the application to be endorsed by the Project Sponsor, client/owner or the applicant’s immediate supervisor.  

Assessment of all submissions, whether at the national, regional or international level, is conducted by a highly experienced panel of expert project managers using standardised application templates and judging criteria, which are based on:

  • Clarity and succinctness of the application, including the use of the STAR (Situation, Task, Actions and Results) format
  • Compliance with the Submission Guidelines
  • Outstanding achievement and innovation in technical and behavioural competencies
  • Quality of supporting evidence
  • Interview results

After the judges have individually assessed each application, they will meet to shortlist potential finalists.  The judges may then interview potential finalists via video teleconferencing or telephone. The individual judges’ scores for the interview are then added to their scores for the Application Form to determine the finalists and the recipient of the Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.
